Print media is dead? Long live print media! In response to the allegations that print media is on its deathbed, we decided to put together an issue of the magazine focusing on fanzine culture and its significance in the punk community. In this month’s issue we have an interview with Erick Lyle of the long-running San Francisco zine Scam, as well as, one with John Holmstrom of the legendary Punk magazine, one of the first punk zines from NYC. The artist Rich Jacobs compiled a history of skate zines, and we have an interview with Janelle Hessig of Tales of Blarg, the classic East Bay punk zine. There’s a feature about the politics and symbolism of punk flyer art, and an interview with Ryan Wells and Scott Soriano of the outsider garage zine, Z-Gun. Stuart Schrader of the Shit-Fi website discusses fanzine culture in the face of blogging, and for another perspective we have an interview with Rich of the music blog and online community Terminal Boredom. PLUS we asked numerous zine makers to make a page of MRR as if it was their own zine. All of that alongside the usual columns and the most extensive review section in punk!

The March issue, #310, is our much-anticipated annual year-end top ten edition, in which our many reviewers and contributors discuss the music that mattered

the most in 2008! It is also the first part in a series covering the debacle of health care in America, dedicated to the memory of longtime contributor and

Bay Area musician Lance Hahn. The cover art, a portrait of Lance, is a collaboration between Tim Kerr of the BIG BOYS, and renowned skate artist Rich Jacobs.

A wide range of punks contributed, on subjects ranging from getting shot in the face, to finding a lump in your breast, and not having any insurance. There

are pieces on finding out you have a terminal disease, curing a stomach condition through fermented foods, and a piece by Fat Bob of South London's own HARD

SKIN on why crusties should wash! There are pieces by punk doctors, punk nurses and nursing school drop-outs! And all the usual columns and the most

extensive review section in punk rock

INSUICIETY - The cure for the truth LP
Finally coming up with their first full-length, this multicultural band creates an ugly bastard of Black Sabbath metal, hardcore punk and sample-loaded

atmospherical noise passages. Sheer heavy riffs, punishing drums and stomach-deep bass-humming over which a tortured female voice expresses both hate and

desperation roll slowly, but unstoppable towards the overwhelmed listener. Just as Kylesa are leaving their path with their recent album, INSUICIETY are

ready to take over the crown of "heavy tribal punk"! or in other words: imagine souls at zero era neurosis meets damad...

3 songs ( about 45 minutes ) of massive doom, think khanate meets corrupted, mastered by JAMES PLOTKIN ( old lady drivers, khanate, phantomsmasher ). As much

as we love us some ultra doom, some seriously sick slowness, you know, that doooooom, that is so glacial, that the songs begin to crumble and ooze into

viscous black pools. We do. But sometimes we just want our doom to ROCK. Sounds contrary but it's been known to happen. Doom can be slow and low and still

rock. Take B.Son for example. Whose particular brand of doomic energy is drawn from bands like Harvey Milk, Karp, The Melvins, godheadSilo, more a sort of

downtuned propulsive sludge with doom elements, than pure doom. But goddamn if it isn't just as brutal and heck, doomy... Thick ropy buzzbass, pounding

destructo drums, throaty howls, grinding guitars, all lurching and swaying like some drugged and demented superrock doombeast, all filtered through a bit of

grinding screamo and some buzzed out metallic blackness. (Aquarius)

B.SON (BLACK SHAPE OF NEXUS) - Microbarone meetings 2xLP
don’t expect any sludge or doom, it's raw dark Ambient – Drone
